Abstract

“U.S. creativity and ingenuity improves the lives of people all over the world. American innovators, like our scientists, artists and writers, rely on intellectual property protection to safeguard their inventions and creations. Strong ipr protection should also be a priority for other countries because it will help them attract investment and technology.”
